When editing a status, there's a setting "Member can set this status?" and an input box to set the text that should show. As far as I can see it's working without issue. I did notice an issue with the "Public Name" setting which I've fixed though.
Please don't just open new bug reports for the same issue. As I've said before, this doesn't happen locally and nobody else has reported the problem. If you're not willing/able to provide me with access to your install so I can take a look there isn't anything we can do.
