Are you sure the shell isn't breaking on the quotes? Have you tried

svn rm https://142.8.7.6/svn_repository/tags/Core/r1/TestPkgs%5C0.3.1
-m "delete bad tag"

yet?

If that doesn't work, can't you at least download the latest SVN .zip
build from subversion.tigris.org, unpack it to a directory you have
permission to write to, and then use that binary for this one
operation?
