php server side events [sse]

I have several virtual servers operating with php-fpm perfectly fine.  
Buffering/caching with Wordpress is great.  But now...

I'm trying to implement a new site that uses php for server-side events 
to stream live updates to clients.  This is, I believe, properly done 
with an infinite loop in php that will send events as they occur.  The 
problem is the events seem to be getting buffered and don't appear.

If I write the php program to end after sending an event then it works.  
If I restart php-fpm then it works - at least for a while.

I've tried numerous config options - obviously what I'm trying isn't 
working.  Any suggestions?
