If you're looping live, try using Ableton merely as your host program and 
something like Augustus Loop for capturing your loops.  I think the timing 
should work out a bit better.

Also, as you mentioned, you may have some quantization settings a bit 
whacked.  Since Augustus Loop isn't tied into those settings, a quick test 
should begin narrowing down the source of the problem.

If you're still having problems (even with Augustus), then I'd start to 
examine your MIDI setup.  You could be having latency/system load issues 
which are affecting the timing of your triggers.
