The command
chitesti 314795 121666 \ 0.9318*436461 0.0682*436461
produced

Chi-square test:
observed frequencies from keyboard
expected frequencies from keyboard

Warning: totals of observed and expected differ
              total
observed     436461
expected     436461

         Pearson chi2(1) = 304489.6035   Pr =  0.000
likelihood-ratio chi2(1) = 181321.5938   Pr =  0.000

                                   residuals
      observed    expected     classic     Pearson
  1.    314795  406694.375  -91899.375    -144.105
  2.    121666   29766.641   91899.359     532.657

------------------------------------------------------

QUESTION-1.
I do not understand the warning because
observed and expected do NOT differ ?

QUESTION-2
Expected (1) should be 436461*0.9318 = 406694.3598,
not 406694.375 ?

Thank you.
