I think the issue is that x11vnc uses the XTest protocol/extension to
simulate the events at the device and XTest doesn't support pressure
information.  Pressure information is needed for detecting whether
the device is used with fingers or stylus.

If you want to disable pressure information usage, you need to run
the device X server with XInput protocol/extension disabled.  Just
add  "-extension XInputExtension" to the /etc/init.d/x-server file
X server options and reboot the device.  Note that if you make a mistake
and X server doesn't start, your device could end up in a reboot loop.
