Problem inserting into table from trace file consumes all space in tempdb


I'm working with SQL Server 2008 SP3 Enterprise Edition (64-bit)

I'm trying to import a trace file of about 3.5 MB (4667 rows) into a table as following:

INSERT INTO DBTRACE with (rowlock)
SELECT * FROM ::fn_trace_gettable('D:\DBTRACES\TRACE.trc', DEFAULT)

It keeps executing until it fills up the tempdb (2 data files of 30 GB each) then the following error comes:

Could not allocate space for object '<temporary system object: 422212485644288>' in database 'tempdb' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 1105). The step failed.

I already restarted the service and keeps doing it, yesterday it was running fine.

I imported the same trace file into another table in another server and it works successfully and took about 1 second.

Have anyone ever dealt with something like that? I would appreciate any help.
