Is it really all that recent? I think there are plenty of parallels outside computing. Children have been throwing tantrums forever, for example, and people throw their backs out all the time. Cars don't throw a rod very often any more (though mine did about a year ago). I'm sure we've all been really thrown by something unexpected. In all of these, something bad (or at least unusual) has been thrown your way.
So, "throw an error" without having anything to do with the very specific notion of exceptions? Not too different than throwing a fit, really, except that we like our compilers to be fussy, at least to a certain extent.
