Docker Toolbox on Windows: New state of 'nil' is invalid

If you are using Docker Toolbox on Windows to run Sourcegraph, you may see an error in the frontend log output:

frontend |
     frontend |
     frontend |
     frontend |     New state of 'nil' is invalid.

After this error, no more frontend log output is printed.

This problem is caused by docker/toolbox#695 in Docker Toolbox on Windows. To work around it, set the environment variable LOGO=false, as in:

docker container run -e LOGO=false ... sourcegraph/server

See sourcegraph/sourcegraph#398 for more information.
