RESOLVED does match.

Beware, this is a known "false friend" in English/French (although it
is used in a equivalent meaning as in "Je suis résolu à" or "J'ai pris
la ferme résolution de"). To resolve is to decide firmly, not to solve
(well, as well, but in a later meaning).

If the RESOLVED status in Bugzilla had been understood as "SOLVED",
then RESOLVED - FIXED would be a pleonasm.
