Looking at the Blizzard API's, it seems like you're only supposed to be able to get durations for things you cast. Elk's code gets around this (I think) with the follow type of code:
You always have the time for auras on yourself and your pet(?). It's when the auras are on other units that you only get the time for ones you cast. That's how the API works. And EBB does work for target, but if it's something you didn't cast, it won't have a time for it.
