When in doubt, try shift-clicking.

* Click on the existing street to select it
* Shift-click to add a new node where you want to start the second street
* click on the new node to select it
* Shift-click on the node to start drawing the second street.

Hope that helps you, potlatch is easy when you get into the swing of things.
