     I think Bill is talking about hitting the "Multiply" button, not just 
inserting more audio
into an existing loop.  It's a great discovery that Bill tells us about, 
though I don't think that
you're referring to the same thing here.  Since you're using the FCB1010, 
it may be that it's
sending extra MIDI stuff.  Or possibly that the Repeater is freaking out 
from the MIDI commands
regardless of their pristine nature.

     Zoe continues:
<<  Also, shouldn't matter I guess, but I always start my loops on an 
upbeat (i.e. the AND of 4).
Besides feeling more logical to me, then the beginning of the downbeat 
sounds natural. It's like
the upswing/breath that a quartet takes or a conductor gives before 
starting a piece.>>

     Ah, this is great as well.  I never thought about it that way, but it 
makes marvelous sense
to start a loop on an upbeat.  I like your breath analogy.
