Hmmm, you're right on that. Pull the Bug ID editbox a bit to the left
and fit a combobox after it?

Reduce the bug resolution combobox to a single checkbox? True means
"mark as whatever the bugtracker understands as
fixed/resolved/closed/whatever", false means "don't change status".

I can't think of a way to handle this, let alone in this small space.
(Setting aside hack'n'slash solutions like entering "888F;456" in the
Bug ID box.) But even with the simplistic resolution of propagating
the status change to all bugs, this will be useful in the (probably)
more common case, while the more complex operations can still be
performed via the normal bugtracker interface.
