There are three behavior to be exact which I can reproduce

1. If Guake is in full screen -> press the restore from the top toolbar (between close, minimise, restore)-> Guake will go to a lesser size (X, Y both)-> if you toggle it twice (press F12 twice) -> it will go back to full screen

2. If you try to keep the X axis (horizontal length) less then maximum X value it will automatically go to the full X axis value

3. If the Y (height) is greater then 75% of max (approx) it will go for max X and Y value i.e full screen in next toggle

Btw I notice the same issue in Tilda (at least behaviour 3 for sure).

I have tried a couple of code changes but its nor working for me as of now. I am still working on it

I appear to be suffering from the same problem in Ubuntu 12.04 under Unity 2d. Quitting Guake and re-loading seems to restore the correct window size and behaviour but makes using F11 - Full Screen, difficult to use.

Bug still appears in 12.10 (guake 0.4.3-3). A workaround is to edit /usr/bin/guake and change line 821 to

  width = 97

(May vary depending on your screen width.)

i was having problem when by mistake i slided the slider completely down to screen and unable to see the slider.
i played with code and got this one,this code sets the maximum height for guake

search for this line 686

 max_height = self.window.get_screen().get_height()
        percent = y / (max_height / 100)

change value to

 max_height = self.window.get_screen().get_height()
        percent = y / (max_height / 90)

using mint 17 XFCE guake version 0.4.4
