That is something I have seen a couple of times and which is a bit annoying. If x11vnc does not starts-up correctly I would expect to see that something has been failed. But right now everything looks like it is working. We shall print a failure instead when running the x11vnc script:

# start x11vnc 
x11vnc start/running, process 1816

[root@mm-ub-1204-64 ~]# ps -ef | grep x11vnc
root      1905  1750  0 00:42 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto x11vnc

From syslog:

Oct 23 00:42:04 mm-ub-1204-64 kernel: [   23.896916] init: x11vnc main process 
(1816) terminated with status 1

Any idea why it's not starting up correctly?

In this case it's a Ubuntu 12.04 machine, and I wasn't able to find the x11vnc log. Do you know where that is located?
I don't, no.  It looks like it's daemonizing itself, although the difference in pids (1816 -> 1905) suggests it's doing so very slowly, or you have an ongoing forkbomb on your system.  It's possible that the init script is wrong..

Unfortunately we don't have the cycles to work on this.
