Just to make my discovery easier to find, I'm going to post and answer it as a question on here, since I can't possibly be the only person who would have experienced this.

Ok, found the problem: the undertilde package adjusts \baselineskip but does nothing to \lineskiplimit and \lineskip, which are 3pt and 4pt respectively in a multiline environment, but 0pt and 1pt in a single line environment.

Looks like in a normal equation environment, the original \baselineskip is 12pt, while in an aligned environment, the original \baselineskip is 15pt. The \utilde command uses a \baselineskip=1pt command to stack the symbols.

I should also add that I'm using the mathptmx package

comment Sub tilde in LaTeX
It gave extra space in every multiline environment I tried. I'm not really sure what causes it -- I'm looking into it, but it seems the \utilde command really only depends on \fontdimen5. I wonder if that dimension is redefined in a multiline environment....

Interestingly, the \utilde command does not work properly in any sort of multi-line environment -- it inserts too much space between the tilde and the argument.
