For reference, on Linux Mint 13 MATE (based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS), the version of Guake in the repository is 0.4.2. However, as mentioned earlier, this version works fine under Ubuntu 12.04 (Unity). This is why I suspect it is not Guake that is at fault, but perhaps another package / distro-specific configuration.
In your LMDE setup, which desktop environment are you using? Was Guake not working in the past, yet started working recently due to the updates?
