I could reproduce your bug, Dstruct. :bugconfirmed:

The important bit is that you keep the mouse button all the time and then press Tab key (while mouse button is still pressed). To me it looks as if XnView doesn't update internal selection coordinates until you release the mouse button. This means when keeping mouse button pressed and hitting "Tab" key not the current selection but the previous selection's ratio is toggled.

This is still present in v2.38 but left or right clicking anywhere on the picture afterwards clears the problem for me.
