Steps to reproduce

After about 5,5 seconds (on my system), the connection to an Edge browser from Selenium 3.5.3 disappears without further information, browser closes unexpectedly.

Edge Version: 41.16281.1000.0
Microsoft WebDriver Version 10.0.16281.1000
Selenium 3.5.3 (Java Bindings)

Code to reproduce:

System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.driver","C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Web Driver\\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe");
EdgeOptions options = new EdgeOptions();
EdgeDriver driver = new EdgeDriver(options);
System.out.println("Loading website");
System.out.println("Done Loading website");

double i = 0;
int step = 100;
long next = System.currentTimeMillis();
while(true) {
    // doing something to check if the driver still exists:
    String url = driver.getCurrentUrl();
    System.out.format("Driver still there after %.1f seconds (showing %s)\n",i/1000,url);

Expected output:
The terminal should print the url without breaking.

Actual Output:
The program stops with output:

Driver still there after 5,3 seconds (showing http://www.example.com/)
Driver still there after 5,4 seconds (showing http://www.example.com/)
