The way OS X's GUI works and X11 works is very different.

Maybe you need to run Xvnc with the "-query localhost" command.  Of
course you'll need to enable that in the gdm config.  But this isn't
quite what you want though.  This would give you a remote session, but
not the one currently displayed.

I doubt you can do it exactly as you want because X restarts or resets
often during the process.  Certainly on logout X resets, which would
kill a vnc that was sharing it.
