Error about full tempdb log file

Almost daily we receive an error in the SQL Server log referring to the tempdb log file being full, and this puts our database at a complete standstill. Our file properties for this particular file are: Unrestricted growth allowed at a file growth of two percent. Is there some other setting that we should be aware of that would allow the file to grow to "full" status?

Just because it is defined as unrestricted growth, doesn't mean it can grow unrestricted. It is still bound by the amount of physical disk space you have and once that is gone, it can not get any larger.
