RT's use of sphinx requires the daemon to answer, which you didn’t start. With your example file when I start the daemon I get this error:

# service searchd start
Starting searchd: Sphinx 2.0.8-id64-release (r3831)

using config file '/etc/sphinx/sphinx.conf'...
WARNING: compat_sphinxql_magics=1 is deprecated; please update your application and config

Note that your file doesn’t contain magics=1. So I totally agree that it’s an annoying bug that the developers should fix, but it’s also something you can avoid by putting it in the file you output.
