How many posts does your site have? 8MB ought to be enough for anyone.

There's nothing special about that line, it's just making an empty  
array to store the event times.

Something is using up all of your memory, but it's probably  
(hopefully?) not EC. Try turning off other plug-ins and see if that  
makes a difference (just for testing, not permanently).

The admin screen probably gets ALL of your posts rather than just 10 at  
a time. It's loading more in, so that's why it's running out of memory.

It's a nasty problem. I really don't think EC is to blame. Perhaps you  
could ask about memory problems over on the WP forum.
