The RegEx should match, at least in theory. mod_rewrite should see
(%2520 --> %20). Are any other rules above that rule?

Is this in a per-server (httpd.conf) or a per-directory (.htaccess) context?

If it is per-server, I think you need the root slash, i.e.:

RewriteRule   ^/whatPage/(.*)/whatTag/(.*)/$   /index.php?whatPage=$1&whatTag=$2 [L]
