A couple of issues:
1. I think key mappings are not correct! Try to write for example character 'a' or whatever from your computer's keyboard (that runs vnc-viewer) to your Kindle's URL bar and you'll see it writes a weird character before it. Also, Shift, Tab, Control, and ... are mapped with weird characters.

2. Sometimes x11vnc crashes with this error in the terminal (for instance when running browser):

Code:
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  132 (MIT-SHM)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  4 (X_ShmGetImage)
  Serial number of failed request:  77551
  Current serial number in output stream:  77553
That says you have run out of shm space. Which is taken from available ram. (Similar to where tmpfs space comes from.)
Three choices:
Add more ram (not practical without the special re-work tools) ;
Run fewer programs at the same time ;
Enable swap ;

Choice two is probably the best choice of the three.
