I've never heard of this, ever.  I'd like to ask you to git bisect the
problem, to determine the exact commit where it started.

Assuming that it works fine with ranger 1.5.0, you could do it like

$ cd ranger
$ git checkout master -f  # overrides all uncommited changes to ranger
$ git pull origin master  # updates ranger
$ git bisect start master v1.5.0
$ ./ranger.py -c          # -c makes it skip loading configs
$ git bisect $X
$ ./ranger.py -c
$ git bisect $X
$ ./ranger.py -c
$ git bisect $X

Replace "$X" with "good" if the version worked fine, with "bad" if
ranger breaks your termios settings or with "skip" if you can't
say for certain if it works or not.

Also, throw in a "reset" command to restore the termios settings when
they break.

After roughly 8 steps, it should tell you what the offending commit is.
