x11vnc + gnome

Ok, x11vnc works fine to me, until I started to mess with it in my startup things and stuffs, though my pc starts up fine and everything like that.
All I changed in the gnome config file was to set KillInitClients to false.
Now I can't log in to gnome. Everytime I do, the gnome login screen just restarts and when I type in username and password again, it restarts again and again and again.

What have I done wrong?
By the way, I'm using Debian, and in my /etc/init.d/local file (coz debian hasn't got the rclocal file or whatever it is I think, read it on a website) I added this:

x11vnc -auth /var/lib/gdm/:0.Xauth -display :0 -shared -forever -dontdisconnect -rfbauth pathtomypasswordfile
