 Replying to [comment:1 tyxla]:
 > Since the user has no publishing capabilities, the post status box
 should definitely not be there. So that is working correctly IMO. However,
 the `post_status` had to be checked before used, which is addressed in the
 patch above.

 Yes, this is correct. Note that it takes a pretty odd set of circumstances
 to get to this point: you have to be previewing a post that you did not
 write, and therefore you must have 'edit_others_posts' (perhaps among
 other caps), but you can't have 'publish_posts'.
