Some updates: I haven't faced the bug for the last some days of not intense ranger usage. And I remember that all the times I got the bug it was during a range of intense data movement operations and directory navigation. Maybe this info will help.

Thank you for your attention, I'm looking forward.

Apparently they are garbage collected (not by python but by ranger, in fm.garbage_collect()) and not properly reloaded. "if value.is_directory: value.files = None" would explain why they're empty. I'll look into it.

Got this bug again. It took much more time to get it for this time. I will try to specify the conditions.

I can't reproduce it, but I pushed a commit that might have fixed this (8215f3af6a18755165e105879eeaad4fcad9951d). Can you check if it still happens?

ranger-master 1.6.0
Python 2.7.3

After some work aroud with ranger I noticed that some directories displayed empty in the right column. But actually they are not, and I see the content if enter the directory. But when I come back one level up, the directory looks empty again. Either :reload_cwd or :reset command help to get normal view.
Looks like the problem appeared after this commit: https://github.com/hut/ranger/commit/d51f8d5a3f1b4addaff34ccffb2291b136117627
The bug is floating and I failed to catch the certain conditions yet, sorry.
