I forgot to mention this is on FreeBSD-10.0-BETA3 .

1-Yes I use X 1.7.7 but the problem is present in tty too.

2-Changing the terminal size has no effect.

3-The terminal is rxvt-unicode but I've tried with xterm too and it has the same issue.

4-So far no they seem to be working fine.

5-I don't know, nothing related has been update recently I think.

Other suggestions on what to look for ?

python27-2.7.5_4 on my FreeBSD machine runs ranger in a getty (no X) just fine. I tried the newest git-version, ranger 1.6.1-stable, as well as an older 1.5.5-git version without problems.

A problem like yours is generally difficult to debug... Let's start with:
1. Do you use X?
2. Does it help to change the terminal size?
3. What terminal?
4. Do you have problems with other ncurses programs?
5. Maybe another package is the source for this problem? The rest of my system is some months old and only python2.7 and ranger is up to date. I was going to update /usr/lib/libncursesw.so, but I don't know which package it belongs to.

After upgrading from python27-2.7.5_3 to python27-2.7.5_4 on FreeBSD ranger shows a Warning: Subwindow size out of bounds and the view is all messed up.

This is the output of ranger -d :
