I did build the client that my logs show I was using during this testing.
It was the 1.1.4 release of Subversion. It did allow me to add the file
with the "del" character (0x7f) but when I try to commit that to the server
running 1.4.3, it does not allow it.

Committing it to a local FSFS repository using Subversion 1.1.4 did work.
(I have not tried BDB as my build environment is not set up for doing that
test right now)

So, this "bug" is not a bug in current (1.4.3) release and the server does
prevent the entry of this data. However it does look like Subversion
1.1.4(and most likely all
1.1.x releases) do/did allow this.
