Okay, after trying several variations I finally figured out that the individual
who created the tag had used more than one backslash in the name and that the
TortoiseSVN wasn't showing the correct name; but was interpreting all but the
last backslash as directory separators. Once I figured that out I could use
the command:

svn rm https://<url>/dir1/dir2/Core\\r1\\TestPkgs\\0.3.1 -m "bad name"
