i think this should be "if (ret != ACCEPT_SESSION)"

SP_connect() is probably failing because you passed a NULL pointer as
the last argument - according to the SP_connect() man page it should
be a "pointer to a string big enough to hold at least MAX_GROUP_NAME

since the call to SP_connect() is failing, the mbox is invalid, so the
call to SP_join() fails too with errno==ILLEGAL_SESSION.
