Olex suggested doing a manual loading of the developed film and checking of the perforations, that everyting was aligned alright. I did a run through with the wole roll of developed film, with opened lid, and now the loops performed as they should, i.e. I didn't loose them.
So my recommendation, based on this experience, is to do a careful manual loading, checking that the cogs (or teeth) of the sprocket wheel and the pull down claw are aligned through the perforation. If they are, everything should work alright.
What I am saying is: loosing the loops are a sign of bad loading.

Try again. Like they say on the shampoo directions: "Wash, rinse, repeat"

Good luck man.
PS- Though its not that important, a lot of dust can get on the ground glass too so you might want to use a piece of DRY lens cloth placed at the end of an orange stick and GENTLY get the dust and hairs off.
