They look to be caught exception functions, possibly the user programmer's fuckups & screwups.
Steven Levy's book "Hackers: Heroes of the computer revolution" tells as part of its story how Microsoft BASIC was pirated by the "homebrew computer" community in the 1970ies. That was the BASIC interpreter which Bill Gates and Paul Allen wrote for the Intel 8080, as used in the early Altair 8800 computer.
That source code, commented, etc. surfaced a few years ago. I believe you can still find it in that form.
