Cannot start some containers after restarting docker daemon

When I restart docker service, I would start the following container, but error occurs.

$docker ps -a
591009977bae  yomin/deepdive:1.0  "/bin/bash"  3 weeks ago   Exited (-1) 3 hours ago

    In fact when I reproduce your situation,
    I restart the container successfully.

    Docker version 1.9.x has some obscure bugs.

    I think it a good idea that you may upgrade your docker-engine to the latest version(1.10.3) and retry.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
